*July 18, 2013:

*_Desert Flower_

Experience the rich berry fruit taste of Crème Yvette and tart lime juice paired with the smoky character of tequila or mezcal for a smooth, refreshing treat. 

-Did you know? Black currant is an antioxidant powerhouse that combats sore throats, bacterial infections, and wards off the common cold.

_Marco Pignataro Quartet presents “Italia in Jazz” 

_"Italia in Jazz" is a tribute to timeless Italian standards and original music, directed by saxophonist and composer Marco Pignataro. He brings together some of the most influential jazz musicians from the New York scene: Sicilian pianist/singer Daniela Shächter, Rogério Boccato on drums/percussion, and Jay Henderson on acoustic bass. “Italia in Jazz” includes creative arrangements of old Neapolitan songs, famous arias, and more contemporary compositions in a soulful and engaging modern jazz style. The group also features beautiful, original compositions from Pignataro’s critically acclaimed CD “Sofia’s Heart;” inspired by Italy and his hometown, he wrote the popular songs “Homesick” and “Bologna d’Inverno” (Bologna in Winter). 

*August 15, 2013:

*_Strawberry Fields

_ A surprising pairing of bourbon, Crème Yvette and a touch of bubbly ginger ale and lime resulting in a light, yet bold taste. 

-Did you know? Ginger aids digestion, soothes the stomach, relaxes muscles, and can even alleviate arthritic aches and pains.

_Michéal Castaldo, Italian Tenor, Songwriter, and Producer 

_Michéal Castaldo performs selected songs from his various classic Italian recordings live with a string quartet. A spectacular performer, he takes music to the highest of heights. His stage presence is enormous and he performs with majesty and grace. Listening to Castaldo, one feels transported, as if on an exotic journey to his beloved homeland — Italy. As a bonus, he is an olive oil connoisseur and will host an olive oil tasting. 

The exhibition is open from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, with the live concert from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.
